No comprende

Wh@t's up with it?
I don't understand it.
I don't understand how it gets twisted into this giant highway of lies and then, most of the time, crashes and burns in the middle of the giant intersection between Teenager and Adult.
Do you get what I'm saying?
Am I making any sense?
To some people, I do. To most people...I don't.
How do you feel about life. Honestly.
Is it dull. boring. bland.
Think about it.

What do you think about yourself?
Honestly. Do you think you're beautiful? How about strong. What is your favorite quality about yourself? When I say you, I mean YOU. Not your makeup. Not your clothes. Not even your appearance. What do you feel like on the inside. Do you let other people get you down? Do you listen to all the negativity going on around you; i.e. all of the people who can only put themselves first and don't have the soul to think about anyone else.
Trust me-- It's not even close to being worth anything. You are beautiful. You are strong. You are who YOU are. Now, only you really know who that is. It can be shy, it can be sweet, it can be depressed, and it can be lonely. You control your destiny. You're the only one who can make that decision.

Hey :)
So, my camera is broken. Has been for a while now, I just haven't had much time to update on it. I know, silly me. Letting my camera break like that...hm. Anyway, I wanted to do a little update and since I've never done one of those little questionnaire things before;
  1. What do you hear right now? James Morrison, Man In The Mirror cover acoustic.
  2. Look to your left, what do you see? A glass of water, hotel confirmations, bus schedules, and a painting. 
  3. What are you doing right now? Now I'm listening to Jason Mraz, watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians on mute, and...working on my blog.
  4. What did you do this morning? Woke up, took a shower, went to the park. Got hungry, went to Dollar Tree, bought a pack of vanilla creme cookies (regretfully). Ate cookies, had a sugar high then crash, went to work.
  5. Is there anything you're looking forward to doing in the next few weeks? Going to New Jersey!
  6. What's the most exciting thing that's happened to you this week? Met some cool people, realized that I'm completely capable of doing things on my own, and learned how to play Wild Horses (it's The Rolling Stones people) on piano. Well...that's exciting for me. Haha
  7. What are you going to be doing tomorrow? Jammin' with some beautiful people, working, and hopefully taking pictures.
...Maybe I should just buy a new camera.

(what have you guys been up to?)

New Endings & Old Beginnings

Hey beautiful people!
First of all, I would like to apologize for being MIA for the last couple of days...you can thank Irene for that. But the hurricane did not rock me hard enough because I came out of it mostly unscathed. I lost my aunt the day of the disaster, it was an indirectly related event. Although I didn't know her that well, any family of mine is close to my heart--especially sisters of m y mother. On the bright side, I know that now my aunt Emily is safe up in Heaven with my beloved grandmother. It's a sad but uplifting event when someone passes. In my opinion anyway :)
R.I.P. Aunt Emily

Auntie Em... I love you.  You were a free spirit and you lived life on your own terms. We will miss you!

Love always,

Matisa & Kelsey

Selfishly Secluded


I'm selfishly secluded. I eat alone. I think alone. I work alone. I travel alone. Never have I done something with someone successfully--not for a long period of time at least. I'm terrible at group projects. I shut down and keep my opinions to myself. Never have I messed up a relationship. I shut down and keep my opinions to myself. Constantly I wait for someone to notice my quiet grace. Always do I long for something to take me away to a place where I can express myself indefinitely...Am I random? Yes. Am I rambling? Of course I am. That's what I do best. It runs in the family. So does thinking too much--but that gene shuts down when I write. Like right now. What am I doing? Why am I talking to myself pretending that someone is listening.
If you're listening, if you know I'm here, tell me.
I promise I'm not crazy. Just open.

Last Minute Mashup

So, there I was, 11:00p.m., getting ready for bed when suddenly--
Oh goodness. I haven't posted on my blog today.
I know, right? Is a blog really more important than sleep?
To me, yes. I love this blog. I love feeling like I have something to say, do, teach. I love the constant hope that at least one of my posts has impacted or influnced someone in some kind of way. I love that I have something set in stone to look forward to doing every day. I also love that I can now add something to my list of, "things you like to do during your free time." You know, that list that you always give to someone new when the conversation is getting dull and they ask, "So, what do you like to do during your free time?" Mine consists of singing, playing guitar and piano, blogging, and dancing around my room in my pj's to the Jonas Brothers (I tend to leave that last part out). So, I guess, hoorah for new hobbies. Also, hoorah for the creatively open minded people who are brave and bold enough to create one of these things. Am I one of those people? I don't know.

But I sure like to think of myself as such.

Skreet Peeps

Hey ya'll
How was your monday night? Mine was good--well, as good as monday nights can be I guess :) My sister and I went to go see that new "scary" movie, Fright Night. If you love laughing at badly made movies, this is the one to go see. That and Pro-Life. Haha...ahhh, memories. Anywho, this post was going to be on our outfits, but we were too tired when we got back to take more pictures (yes, excuses excuses). So, I'll put up the two we did take, and then fill your brain with pictures of gorgeous people I found while walking in various places. Lovely? Yes.

 Isn't he hot? Just sayin..
 They were rude, but very cute ;)
He was the sweetest! And so adorable (perfect example of how-to wear graphic tees)
Love this chick's ink.
